Why does laser hair removal hurts? Although laser hair removal isn’t exactly a painful procedure some patients report that on certain areas the treatment can be more unpleasant than on others. Such as the legs, face and bikini areas. It may feel unpleasant on these areas is because your skin is a lot thinner than on other parts of the body.
Why does laser hair removal “hurts”?
In most cases, laser hair removal causes minimal pain, especially when you compare it to other treatments like waxing. Many patients state that it feels like being snapped by a rubber band. The area being treated and your personal pain tolerance will dictate the pain level associated with laser hair removal.

The lasers we use are connected to a cool air glide. This blows at the skin at the same time as the laser fires. As a result making the treatment more pleasant. You may still feel an element of heat and a few little pricks at the skin but this is totally manageable. And some times may not feel anything at all.
Some patients say it compared to waxing is, laser is a walk in the park; and we totally agree. It should not be an unbearable experience, so please do state your sensation to your practitioner who can reduce the settings.
